Shiva Kartikeyan a popular tamil actor makes his foray into telugu films with his movie. He is quite impressive with his acting skills especially the scenes in the lady attire make for a good watch. Keerthi Suresh is one of the highlights of the film. The telugu audience will surely enjoy watching her onscreen. Both her chemistry with the hero and also the way her character is shown on screen is a plus point of the movie.
The director elevates the regular plot into an interesting and engaging film. The second half of the movie could have been a little better. At times it gives a feeling of a never ending movie as it keeps dragging till the end. The cinematography by legendary cameraman PC Sreeram is extraordinary. The music by Anirudh is quiet good.
This is a film with routine plot with not many twists in the story either. But the whole difference lies in the way the director conceives the movie on screen. Which is quite commendable. The struggle the hero goes through to win the heroine’s heart is quite engaging and funny in places. The tamil nativity feel is something which is striving in the film and the telugu audience might not be able to connect too much to it.
CineDhol Perspective :
Though the film was a superhit in Tamil. It just seems to be an ok film in Telugu.
